It's a bit of a shame in all honesty . But I think what's really important is our medal haul at the end of the Olympics- as Nigeria did very poorly in Lonfon and look set for the same fate this time around

Okuru Bennett said...

IT'S NOW OBVIOUS, WE WEREN'T READY BECAUSE:
1. NOT SURE OF THE NUMBER IN THE CONTINGENT, HENCE DELAY ON ARRIVAL.
2. LATE PREPARATION, HENCE NUMBER INCREASE.
3. MONEY PROBABLY RELEASED LATE.
4. LATE 'FIRE BRIGADE' AWARD OF BOTH DESIGN and CONTRACT.

Why should we worry now???
It is in our CHARACTER, WAY OF LIFE- A CANCER IN US!!!

Not the biggest deal in the world, but it's a shame that there was another outfit lined up but due naija chaos it wasn't in the athletes' hands on time. They should've all western style suit n tie (in naija colours); as naija get many tribe some peopportunities for cry tribalism, that why was everyone forced to wear so-and-so's tribal outfit loool

Mr Bendel said...

Mr Man, didn't they come out to show us our official opening ceremony outfit 4 weeks ago. The big deal is that this is a reflection of the issue in the country. Out lack of serious, professionalism, effectiveness and efficiency. Obviously some how has been paid lots of money to produce the official outfit and now we never got to use them. Wastage, corruption and incompetence because the right people are never choosen for the right jobs due to nepotism, vested interest and politics. Did you see other African countries? We are a shame to ourselves, an embarrassment to out children and stagnant country who unfortunately think we are the smartest in the world yet we are duller than Amy other nation, as you can see we are progressively get worse by each year. The love of money in this country is killing us.

Pls lets blame Jonathan.
It's all his fault. If he had left money in the vault, the govt. would have had enough to buy materials and pay the tailor. This is all his fault.
